In the last few years connectors, pigtails, plugs (whatever you’d prefer to call them) have changed a bit in terms of most common, top-selling. Just a short, few years ago for example, it was uncommon for Nissan to have blind spot monitor connectors on most vehicles-if at all.
So…for 2018 (below) you’ll find the most common/top-selling connectors:
- Y27C2: Fitment Example-Nissan Connector, Fog Lamp Connector, Honda Connector, Headlight Connector
- L42B2: Fitment Example-Fog Lamp and Head Light Connector
- L43A2: Fitment Example-Hyundai Fog Lamp, Kia Connector
- R62C8: Fitment Example-Blind Spot Collision Sensor Connector, Pigtail, Plug
- E13B3: Fitment Example-Radiator Fan Pigtail, Connector
- A31A2: Fitment Example-Ambient Temperature Sensor Pigtail and Connector, Keyless Entry, Washer
- Y210B3: Fitment Example-Front Turn Signal Connector; Side Marker sometimes
- Y25B2: Fitment Example-Daytime Running Lamp, Headlight
- B21B2: Fitment Example-Fog Lamp
- C53A3 (Tie): Fitment Example-Fog Lamp Connector and Headlight for some
- L64A2 (Tie): Fitment Example-AC Compressor Pigtail, Battery Sensor, Hood
C53A3 has particularly seen a big influx for 2018.
In addition, these pigtails (below) have made their debut as top-10 sellers as more vehicles, new technology & different features are becoming more common and standard across most makes and models.
#4: Blind Spot Connectors and Pigtails were not as common as they are today. Most newer Nissan vehicles come standard now with blind spot monitoring.
#6: Ambient temp pigtails are not necessarily new to the industry but more vehicles have become outfitted with them.
#8: Not long ago, it was uncommon for vehicles to come standard with daytime running lights
